Waiting on all of you musicians to break it down for us strummers.

Thanks in advance.

One chord in that doesn't sound right: the D/F# at the end of the verses. Also, don't think Frank would be that lazy to cadence out on a G, then a D, then a G and then just another form of D, there'd be zero tension there.

I'd bet the farm that after the bar of G on "helped me to see", he turns that into a G7 for two beats and then the bass drops to F# on that same chord for two more beats, making G7/F#. So both the F in G7 and the F# bass drop down to E for the chorus; classical it ain't, but who cares when it's that tasty.

Guitar voicing that sounds best to this ear is:
G7: 353463
G7/F#: 25x46x


Allen Ginsberg says you got no soul. The ancient Egyptians say you got seven of these bastards, and Pharaohs got fourteen, what they get for being Pharaohs.

Thank you picpic! Always appreciate the expertise.

BF often plays B chord 22444x (you can forget the last string)

I think a real power whord should be X244XX or X2444X but I noticed BF almost never mutes the first string when he plays power chords.

I truly great song. I have some theories on the meaning but who knows?

As someone who can barely strum, does anyone have any tips on the B chord? I always have trouble with that one.

Thank you picpic and JoshIAm for posting.

I have no idea what it's about, but I love this song so much.

Death Horizon


[Verse 1]
     G               B
This drink is tranquilizing
C                G
 Just look at us two
B              C             G    D
 Asleep at the beach at Waikiki
     G                B
So I find it very surprising
C               A
 He's coming to you
         G               D             G    D/F#
But I am thankful that he helped me to see

    Em                 Am
You say he's not around
D                G
 Aw, would you please
     Em                   Am
I've seen you looking down
   D  C C/B
At me

[Verse 2]
         G                 B
Have you seen the death horizon?
C                  G
 Just there out of view
B               C              G    D
 Way low in the sky beyond the sea
          G                          B
And I can feel that the temperature's rising
C                Am
 But what can ya do?
            G            D                     G       D/F#
'Cause that death horizon gonna burn you right through

    Em                 Am
You say he's not around
D                G
 Aw, would you please
     Em                   Am
I've seen you looking down
   D  C  D
At me

[Verse 3]
         G                 B
Have you seen the death horizon?
C                  G
 Just there out of view
B               C              G
 Way low in the sky beyond the sea
